EU 'cookie' directive
From 26 May 2011 a new European Union directive requires us to gain the consent of our users to download cookies on to their machines.
There are various methods we could use to gain users consent. For example, we could use pop-ups; prompting users to tick a box to confirm they give permission for us to download cookies on their machine. Alternatively, we could use an online form that all users must complete before using the website.
